Resistance to Thyroid Hormones and Screening for High Thyroxine at Birth
Resistance to thyroid hormone encompasses a heterogeneous group of conditions characterized by reduced responses of target tissues to a supply of thyroid hormone which under normal circumstances would be excessive. The defects have always been partial, because if complete, they would probably be incompatible with life.
